in the region. building on secretary panetta's visit today, and that is the first meeting of defense minister since 2008, the president will reinforce our bilateral relationship and deepen our cooperation on security, counter proliferation and development of the environment. next, the president will make an historic visit to burma, a country whose leaders, after decades of repression, have chosen a path of reform and democratization. visit signalss that engagement is the best way to encourage further action. we're not going to miss our moment in terms of the opportunity to push this along, to try to log in as much reform and locked in a path forward as we can. the president is endorsing and supporting the reforms under way, giving momentum to reformers and supporting continued progress. when the president hosted aung san suu kyi, he told her that the goal of the united states is to collaborate with the natural -- international community and incentivize reform. this will demonstrate that the u.s. can be counted on as a partner when the government makes the right choice. the president's speech

. how important was this? well, the president and defense secretary panetta were very quickly informed last thursday morning when this happened. >> well, if they try it again, presumably barbara, u.s. military jets could scramble and they could get into some sort of dog fight if you will with those iranian jets. how realistic is a scenario like that? >> well, look. the pentagon is not looking for a shooting war with the iranians. top officials are very clear about this. but what were the iranians up to? are they trying to send a signal of more aggressiveness over those critical oil shipping lanes? the pentagon, the obama administration can only let the iranians go so far. if they try this again, that's really the key question. it might have been an unmanned drone, but how far do you really let the iranians go in such a critical economic area, wolf? >> all right, barbara. i know you'll stay on top of this. thank you. let's get back to politics. right now president obama certainly owes his re-election to an extremely well-organized campaign. you know all about the rallies. you know about
: some of the big cabinet members. secretary clinton has said she is going to go. secretary leon panetta is likely to go at some point although he may stay through the sequestration talks which would mean $55 billion to the pentagon. those are big cabinet members and they are likely to go which will take over some dominoes inside the administration as people move up to fill those. inside the west wing, he may the have a new chief of staff. that would be his fourth that he has named. these are times when he can look at those working for him. only two cabinet members left in the first four years. he can begin to tailor his staff to what he wants to pursue. host: eric holder the attorney general has said he will stay on. guest: that is right. he has had a mixed record. he has had a mixed relationship with the white house. he would not be the easiest guy to ask to leave. if he wants to stay, i imagine he would probably stay. says this -- >> this discussion is available on the c-span is video library. we will return to more correction of "cq" "roll call 's" post-election forum. >> reminder th
